DL Resort is our by far our favorite family vacation destination! Mickey is definitely my favorite character, although Eeyore & Grumpy are close. I love EVERYTHING about Disneyland!

I read somewhere that he chose Sleeping Beauty because the movie was coming out about the same time and he wanted to promote the movie. Not sure if that's the true reason or not.

Hm there is a story about this in his books , but one story goes is about the size but when he did build it it was very big, as the castle walls goes to princess Faire area and around Alice since the trees where very small at not hide most of the extended walls like they do today  - pikarich  3629.5 #28 5:35PM
Wow, makes sense though!  - MamalovesMinnie  16.6 #7303 5:59PM
OK nothing concrete but Walt loved a lot of nature and history and was inspired  for many elements in his projects. Sleeping beauty was inspired by a castle from the 19th century and then it's the size of it makes it a focal center for the park but looked bigger in 1955 because of what I said for the trees earlier. He got the same inspiration  for the matterhorn and other areas for disneyland, the frontier lands and of course the main street USA similar to his hometowns I think - pikarich  3629.5 #28 6:46PM
It's pretty amazing that he made such monumental decisions and they were extremely successful! Sleeping Beauty hadn't yet come out and it could have been a flop, but it wasn't! It was probably a risky move instead of going with Snow White, which was already a huge success! Walt was a true genius! Thank you for your info pikarich! I need to read his bio!  - MamalovesMinnie  16.6 #7303 7:00PM

I heard that as well. Not sure if it's true or not, but an interesting theory.  - ekwhite  472.3 #403 5:53PM
So interesting! I just looked it up and Disneyland opened in 1955 but Sleeping beauty didn't premier until 1959!Β  - MamalovesMinnie  16.6 #7303 5:58PM
I was thinking that is was too early for the movie too.  - toniasmith  340.9 #638 6:10PM
Toniasmith can right as there is a blogpost from the walt disney company that says in order to promote the film, thecastle was named after sleeping beauty... The film was in development when dland opened - otilegna  2006.2 #65 8:44PM

What day is it? We're going in September and it would be awesome to dress up for it.

The good thing about Dapper Day is all you have to do is dress up a bit. It's really that simple.  Sure you can wear vintage clothing, but lots of regular clothing works, too. I always search Google images of Dapper Day for inspiration.  - JenGwen323  1484.8 #94 9:15PM

I took my 8 yr old nephew on this for his first in January. He said he'll never do it again. Then took my  6 yr old niece on the Wheel of Death. She refuses to do it again! My husband and daughter refuse to do either of them so I was hoping my nephew and niece would like the rides. They're not as much fun by myself!

When we took the tour Walk in Walt's Footsteps, the CM said it was the center of DL. It surprised me since I've heard from multiple sources it's not. Of course I didn't questions her. Who I am to argue with a DL CM who does this everyday!

We are going to go back and forth with this, but from my research the golden spike was never the center of Disneyland. This has been argued for decades but the most common and realistic use was to mark the castle location and line up the center of main street as Disneyland was being built, there was no partners statue which made it easy to  match the lineup. Survey markers have been used for over a century and could be anything from bottlecaps to a pic or whatever tool was used. To be official logged into the worldwide or national survey database it must be registered to the gss and be given a unique 5 to 6 letter/ number combo. Disneyland did not use official registered survey markers until the 1980’s and was given the idea to theme them after the park. So the golden spike is a survey marker but not the gss one that is why the other markers are different. Also kee in mine that the park has expanded and grown over the decades and the true center is closer to the partners statue today. Credit to madderhorn for the survey marker pic , Wikipedia( history of survey markers),  Disneyland book –Disneyland though the decades, the 626 blog and to info from Brandon://me blog. Ok let your thoughts begin. - pikarich  3629.5 #28 11:14AM

True but even cm can have incorrect  information.  We can too so it will be up to you to research  the facts and decide for yourself.  The golden spike has been argued for years and let me tell you about cm they don't get the same info across the board. I have been to the parks where some don't even know ow that ap events or specific times are happening  in the park even if 1,000 do. From what I gather  the cms will get info  for there department  only and so it's not there fault, some don't even know what attractions  are closed for refurbishement. - pikarich  3629.5 #28 5:16PM
